“fabulous.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We were always told to visit Chicago during the holidays to see all of the lights. It just so happened we visited Chicago this past weekend for a quick trip while our son had surgery. So we did get a chance to go to see the festival of lights. There was a light show and the streets were lit up with lots of lights on the trees, etc. Some of the tall buildings had green and red lights that lit up top floors. It was awesome. The lights in the city at night are always amazing with the view from my son's condo.

Shops and great restaurants. Banana Republic store is huge, Niketown is awesome.

Lights and windows during the holidays are a great treat.

“Shop till you drop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

This has to be some of the best shopping anywhere. There is no shortage of stores and the setting is very beautiful.
